10,000 song limit - WHY?

10,000 song limit - WHY?

So, Amazon Music updated its app back in August. The update caused enormous battery drain issues for iOS, rendering it unusable.


I switched to Spotify as a result. I was loving it UNTIL I ran into the 10,000 song limit. I was thinking, "I'm not going back to Amazon."


I travel for work all the time. Therefore, I'm in airplanes A LOT either without WiFi or with very expensive WiFi. I'm in hotels A LOT with sketchy or expensive WiFi.


Music is one of my few comforts on the road. Streaming from Spotify in my situation is often unavailable, expensive, or unreliable.


Amazon Music had no download limit. While I like the music discovery features of Spotify a little better than Amazon Music, the download limit is a SERIOUS drawback for me in the Spotify experience.


Assuming Amazon Music has fixed their app battery drain issue, I think I'm going to be forced to go back.


The thing is, I don't understand the 10,000 song download limit. Why? What does it matter to Spotify if a user saves 100 or 1,000 or 10,000 or 20,000 songs on their device? It seems arbitrary. It seems like it was pulled out of thin air. I don't understand the why. Why drive any customers away who Spotify could keep by making a few simple changes to lines of code allowing unlimited downloads?

Good news! You can now save an unlimited number of songs and albums in your library. There is no more 10,000 limit for your library.


For more info check out the update on the posted idea and the blog post.


If you are talking about the 10,000 download limit for offline use, unfortunately that has not changed as of right now.
